Ex-PAN urges upon Dy CMnot to withdraw bodyguards

Drawing attention to deputy chief minister in-charge of home, Y Patton, stressing the need to minimise deployment of police personnel as bodyguards to former MLAs, retired bureaucrats and leaders of political parties, the Ex-Parliamentarians Association of Nagaland (Ex-PAN) has appealed to the deputy chief minster (home) to exempt ex-parliamentarian due to “sensitive nature” of their duties and responsibilities.
In a joint statement, president Ex-PAN Joshua Sumi and general secretary Supongmeren Jamir while lauding Patton’s sincere and dedicated effort to reform and modernize the police force, appealed on him to exempt the Ex-PAN members from its purview due to their “sensitive nature” of duties and responsibilities.
The duo explained that ex-PAN members had handled sensitive issues while fulfilling their constitutional obligation as erstwhile elected members and which has also made them vulnerable to “anti-social elements even after retirement”. The duo said as erstwhile elected members, the ex-PAN members had also contributed to society as MLA or MP and continue to do so for society in giving opinions, advice and participation as former ex parliamentarians and senior citizens.
Further, the ex-PAN also pointed out to Patton that the present members are ex-parliamentarians and now to demean them through the decision would also demean himself in future and therefore, urged upon him in the interest of past and present ex-parliamentarians to exempt them from the purview of the order for withdrawal of personal bodyguards.
